Of Rock Pioneers you should include the Jerry Lee Lewis , and the still hanging on but sadly out of it Fats Domino .
In Blues, BB is the only one form the 50's era, I can think of .
In Jazz, Sonny Rollins, Roy Haynes, and Lou Donaldson are the only guys form the bop era I can think of .

Yea, I love The Killer. Definitely an oversight.

Saw Sonny Rollins at Monterey Jazz Fest last year (or year before?) - still had it.

Don't forget Little Richard. He's still kickin' I believe.
